I am just writing to say how much the library and theatre staff and our visiting schools enjoyed your visit today.
Your lively presentation involving the children at every opportunity held them engrossed. You really brought to life the process of creating a book from the seed of an idea, through creating characters and plot to the importance of illustrations, through your personal experiences.
I was very impressed with the way you created a story with the children, taking on board all their ideas as well as getting them to think about why some of their suggestions wouldn't work.
I have had very positive feedback from the schools and hope that they will pass this on to you via your website.
I do hope that we can arrange for you to make some repeat visits to Luton.

This is to confirm that Denis Bond has worked here for 7 years with groups of Year 5 and Year 6 pupils for up to 15 weeks a year.
We value Denis's work with the children so much that we wish to continue working with him in the future. Denis is an inspiration to our children as pupils engage fully in their learning. Denis has made a real impact on pupils creative writing skills. He teaches them in a structured way focusing on aspects of writing which make stories enjoyable to the reader.
With his background in teaching and being an author himself, Denis is well able to manage pupils' behaviour as well as firing their imagination. In fact his teaching has been graded as 'outstanding' by Ofsted.
I have no doubt he will be an asset to your organization.
